Okay, I took a group of friends to see this in the theatres and I got my butt reemed by every one of them, promising they would never let me select what movie to see ever again.
I don't think it was that all bad.
Basic idea. Girl is a chef at her family restaurant. It's doing bad. She meets a guy. She gets inspired. She meets a magical crab (no this is not a disney film), she makes incredible food. She falls in love with guy. Craziness ensues.
Get past a lot of the just really sappy and hoaky items in the movie...you do have a decent movie.
Sean Patrick Flannery has always been a fine actor (remember Powder). And I've always had a little crush on Sarah Michelle Gellar.
